Celtic secures ‘Huge Asset’ announcement imminent


Neil Lennon has offered Celtic some encouragement in the chase for John McGinn.

The midfielder has emerged as a top target for several clubs this summer with him near the end of his current contract with the Easter Road side.

Indeed, as per a report by the Sun, Derby is the latest side interested in acquiring him with the Bhoys also still in the race for him.

Certainly, it’s going to be a tough one between the clubs and it looks as though Neil Lennon knows that it’s quite possible he could depart from Celtic Park.

As quoted by the Edinburgh News, he admitted:

“We would like to keep John – but it’s going to be difficult.

“He is a huge asset. He’s the heartbeat of the team. He and Dylan (McGeouch) will leave big boots to fill – but that’s the nature of the job at a club like Hibs. Players come and if they do well they move on.”

The Bhoys have got a chance, there is hope they can secure the deal.

The Bhoys perhaps don’t have a desperate need for him this summer but he’d be a great addition.

He might not feature in every game and has things to learn and working under Rodgers and with Scott Brown would make him a very strong midfielder indeed.
